The user allows a layer of wind-based chakra to cover their entire body which acts as a shield, visibly seen as a swirling white glow that surrounds the user. The swirling wind armor is capable of quickly evaporating any water or fluid based attacks, nullifying lightning-based attacks and to some degree, extinguishing a number of fire-based attacks, given that the user gives enough amount of chakra for this technique. It also boosts the user's speed.

This armor can also be used in conjunction with Taijutsu attacks, just like when Gitsune couples it with her Gates empowered Hyūga techniques. The user is also able to create blades made of wind and aim them at opponents by swiping their arms or legs.

Yondaime Hokage Version

A variant of this technique was developed Independently by the Yondaime Hokage, instead augmenting movement speed and agility over three times his base ability. It works by coating the user in a thin veil of wind chakra to manipulate the air friction around the user to allow them increased movement potential. It can be used mid air/even to fly somewhat. By extension, if skilled enough, the user can perform most other wind based techniques from this armor without need of handseals. When actualized by Uematsu Tomi, it is said few if any are able to match him completely. Its weakness lies in the fact it makes the user more vulnerable to fire jutsu, though by the same nature, immune to most lightning techniques.
