I have been calling my gear set my "kit". In my mind this includes BC, reg set, gauges - everything but fins, mask and tanks/weights. I mentioned that term tonight in my LDS and they looked at me like my fly was unzipped.

In the Navy we call them diving rigs that term is used to describe all the major components you mentioned everything but fins, mask and weights but could include tanks depending on who you ask and seems to be understandable around the LDS ive been in or around
I have seen the word "kit" used on scuba forums before when referring to your gear. Most of the LDS's I have come across are not familiar with internet scuba forums and may not be hip to the jargon. I have used the word "rig" to describe my equipment before!
On a large pile of smokin' A'a, the most isolated population center on the face of the earth. 2,175 miles to Alaska, 2,390 miles to California; 3,850 miles to Japan; 4,900 miles to China; 5,280 miles to the Philippines.
I think of "rig" as tank, regulator, BP/w or BC, SPG (and console if used), auxiliary, can light (if used) and anything else that is attached to that "rig." "Kit" is a Briticism and I think of that as referring to all of your gear, you know, your kit err ... less your caboodle.
I refuse to believe that corporations are people until Texas executes one.

"They are the McDonalds of diver certification. Quick, inexpensive and tasty. Pardon me for saying so, but I also believe it to be a health hazard." - DCBC
"It truly does boil down to motivation ... if you believe something is hard, or unnecessary to learn, you won't learn it ... even if it's completely within your capability" - Bob (Grateful Diver)
You could go with the common text reference and call it your "scuba unit", that should irritate folks. Generally I find the term rig used. The term "kit" being gear in general from the UK and the like.
