Contrary to popular belief flak jackets are not interchangeable with bulletproof vests. They are designed to protect against fragments from high explosive weaponry like antiaircraft guns land mines low velocity projectiles and grenades.
The flak jacket was invented during World War II. It was made from ballistic nylon and provided protection from ammunition fragments. Flak jackets were bulky and ineffective against most rifle and pistol fire but they were widely used as they provided some modicum of protection and allowed soldiers to feel secure.
