Known as a Tactical Illumination Tool (or TIT for short :)) the Gladius is one mean flashlight. As it costs $250 you should bloody well hope so.
If like me you’re thinking why would I want to spend 250 bucks on a torch (I was actually thinking 200 quid but that’s splitting hairs) then you’d better
The Gladius is supposedly the torch of choice of the S.A.S., due to it’s sie and functionality. The following sales spiel explains a bit more about it.
The Gladius gives you maximum flexibility from very low levels of light (fully adjustable), to it’s unique high-output Strobe function. The particular application of strobe light is a first in a small handheld/weapons mountable tactical flashlight. The Gladius Strobe channel is specifically designed to give you the reactionary gap you need to prevail against a wide variety of threats. The Strobe is extremely disorienting to those on the receiving end, yet allows the operator to maintain excellent situational awareness.
The more familiar momentary and Constant ON switching are quickly and easily accessed all with one-finger operation. The Gladius flashlight features a unique lock-out system that is useful for tactical operations. The Light can seamlessly and securely Locked-out to avoid needless battery and potentially compromising light discharges. The Gladius can be reactivated under duress literally with a snap of your fingers.
If you fancy dazzling your neighbours with the strobe you can get more information from the Night Ops site.
