    One day I am going have to buy me a man purse to put all my man things in.
    Not to cause this to drift-- and with apologies if it does-- my wife came home one day with a purse she found on sale that looked like it might be usable as a man-purse. I told her to go back to the store and buy another.

    I carry it most of the time and don't concern myself with "what others might think" about my taste or orientation. Just don't put a gun in there, because a gun belongs on your person in my opinion. And don't put something in there you don't want to lose. Men are no used to carrying purses and it is easy to forget them at first.

    I have one of those too and carried it for years...Up to roughly two months ago upon being given the E1B by Surefire.

    The Gladius strobe mode owns!
    It now stays on my nightstand.

    I just ordered one of those, it should be here next week, it will be my new EDC once I get used to the tail-cap.

    For the past two years I've been carrying the Lowes special 3AAA 9LED 75lumens "Task Force" it's durable decently bright, but it only does constant on, no momentary.

    I've got two Maglight 4D Cell with LED upgrades, one under the bed one in the car. And 3 2AA incandescent Maglights floating around the house, and a 5 LED 2CR123 battery Target special int he nightstand and for reading.

    I carry a 4Sevens Quark AA2 Tactical flashlight, CRKT M16-14 knife, and a Schrade Tough multi-purpose tool in a NiteIze Pocket-Its belt holder.

    Canav,

    FWIW the Gladius is a big light.
    Long, wide and relatively heavy.

    It's a combat/duty grade illuminator.

    Well as I'm in an OC only state (currently, hopefully that will change someday) I got the holster for it, that if I read it right, is supposed to go onto the spare SERPA paddle or possibly clip onto the belt while I OC, I also frequently wear cargos and am hoping it'll be just small enough to fit there, otherwise it may spend a lot of time in my backpack that's usually with me. I've never really gotten the flashlight down to one consistent place, so I'm at least prepare for trying a few things out.

    It's the length that's the real worry dimension wise.

    I carry my Surefire Backup in my left front pocket.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Yeah the length is a tough one to work around.
    I too have the specific holster and it's big. I wore it to a night club, once, and it's not been with me on the street since.
    I'd toss it in my back pocket and let it lay at angle headside to the left for easy grasping.

    A tough torch it is though...I've had mine since the first year it debuted.

    Fenix PD20 in my pocket everyday. I find it very useful as a general purpose light, whether trying to find something, working around the house, whatever. Small enough to carry everyday, bright enough for self defense.
