AR500 Armor® Hybrid IIIA Soft Body Armor utilizes the latest in ultra-light, thin, high strength, and flexible materials to create a 1lb armor system ranking amongst the lightest and best performing soft body armor in the industry. Constructed from Honeywell Spectra Shield®, Gold Shield®, and DuPont™ Kevlar®, we've harnessed the full ballistic capabilities of these materials maximizing synergy between components creating the ultimate Hybrid IIIA soft body armor panel.
When designing our Hybrid IIIA soft body armor we refused to sacrifice performance, comfort, or affordability. Our focus was to bridge the gap between performance and price point - no sacrifice on either end was acceptable. Our Hybrid soft body armor delivers and includes features only found in more expensive body armor. Our strategically placed low stich patterns on each sub-shoot pack improve performance without forfeiting flexibility and comfort. These unique patterns also aid in performance against back face deformation and edge shots. Our durable laminated antimicrobial Ripstop nylon cover improves longevity and lifespan of the armor by offering superior protection from the elements such as moisture and sweat, and is sonic welded for strength.

What type of lifespan should be expected if worn every day.
The shelf life is about 5 years
on October 24, 2016
Tough soft armor is sort of perishable; under narmal conditions (in vest not exposed to direct sunlight) i'd trust it about 5 - 7 years. They use good materials in this armor.

How much does the 8x10 weigh and if i wear it with my level 3a vest will i be protected from most rifle rounds ?
Well Tony; the Hybid 3a armor is very light max 5oz. It is also verry very thin. As far as your balistcs gueston, I don't know of any soft armor that will effectively stop high velocity rounds (I.e. rifle rouds)

To be protected from rifle fire? Soft Body Armor vests are excellent for fragmentation and pistol protection but will NOT stop rifle bullets. (Even Level III-A is only tested to stop pistol-caliber threats such as 9mm SUB-machine-gun or .44 Magnum.) Steel inserts are inexpensive and extremely durable - but a much higher risk of bullet ricochet, and only Level III protection - not Level IV for AP threats. Ceramic is most popular as it gives you Level IV protection at a reasonable weight - but it can't be banged around as much as other materials for long-term durability. There is no perfect medium. Choose wisely.
