As a WWII P-38 fighter pilot, flak vests were not an option for my father. 
Especially, in the tropical heat of New Guinea, and the SW Pacific where they 
flew most missions in a shirt, foregoing the archetypical leather flying 
jacket. He was also at 6’3” unusually tall for a WWII fighter pilot. So 
he used a backpack parachute instead of the usual seat-pack chute, and a thin 
pad as a seat cushion. So he wasn’t even sitting on the parachute pack like 
the shorter flyers.
