I feel like using a shield makes flak jacket weaker....

I can't count the times I've hit someone dead on with an RC-XD and they live b/c of flak jacket, but if I get hit w/ one using flak jacket and shield it always kills me. Not to mention if I hit someone with two c4s and they live (no, they were not at the edge of the explosion) and yet if I get a bullet to the toe and then ANY grenade/c4, I'm done for....

Idk...maybe it's just in my head.

Could be in your head, on the other hand subtlely weakening flak jacket with the use of a shield is something i could totally see treyarch do covertly for the sake of "balancing". I havent used the shield that much to tell you if your right or wrong though.

I would accept a weakening of flak jacket w/ the shield IF treyarch hadn't been complete asses and removed directional explosives resistance from the shield.
