I recieved my own Gladius three weeks ago and it is all that the marketing promises.
Agreed regarding the 'Strobe' mode it would prove quite handy as a non-lethal option for CCW use escape/evasion.
There is an _excellent_ and complete review made by a gent from the UK that tells the entire story of the Gladius.

Yes, Sir...excellant review..........Thanks!
I bought a Gladius about a month ago at a great price! I could not be happier!! It is quite a useful, well-thought and layed-out light(got me thinkin' Torch' reading that British Blades review!!).
I am a security professional and the Gladius replaced my Surefire and back-up Minimag with LED conversion that I was carrying. I also travel ALOT and a good light or two always accompany me on my journeys.
I highly recommend the Gladius!
The old 6P will soon be attached to my Bulgarian SLR-95........the Minimag rests in my E&E kit, with spare batteries for it and my new 'go-to' light...the NightOps Gladius.
PS: I tried the 'strobe in a dark room in a mirror trick' first thing......I would not have been able to respond effectively after!! Great light!!

I love the idea behind the Gladius. It seems light an awesome light. I kinda wish you could set the brightness without turning it on but that is only a small thing.
By the way here is the link for the gladius on the site you mention.

The odd thing is that on that website (in the link), I searched for and found the Gladius, but their writeup does not mention the fact that the light is an LED (unless I missed it somewhere).
At this point, I am an LED devotee and won't buy flashlights that are not LED anymore. LED light is what I prefer, now (although I know some tout the "warm" light and the "throw" from incandescents), but mostly I like the long life and the impact resistance that LED offers. Drop an expensive incandescent onto concrete and you're replacing the bulb, just like with the cheapest flashlight around.
I had to go to the review to find out that the Gladius runs a Luxeon III LED. Although I am not in the market for a $160+ flashlight, this is one that I would consider.
