    The closest is "Bulletproof vest"

    I also know "body armour" but it probably refers to a whole range of bulletproof means, not only to a vest.

    Hello;

    yes Francois is right;
    hear is definition of "kevlar":

    “ Kevlar thread is used in bulletproof vests because it is so hardy and strong. This thread also works well when heat, cut and abrasion resistance are called for. The Kevlar helps to protect your body<vest> while the cotton absorbs perspiration and keeps you cooler.”

    so i think "kevlar vest" is good synonym for “flak jacket”.

    Hope it’s help
    Best wishes

    Quote from the Concise Oxford English Dictionary--Tenth Edition

    Kevar--n. trademark a synthetic fibre of high tensile strength used especially as reinforcing agent in the manufacture of tyres and other rubber products.

    (Whether or not it is used to make bullet-proof vests, I don't know.)
