Who started this stupid fad of describing things as "kit".

smh

I think it's a Brit thing.

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

Better than “outfit” which sounds girly or limp wrist’d. Prefer “gear”.

I don't have any facts to back this, but its a carry over from cycling. Cycling gear has always been refereed to as a "kit", and "kit" started being used in moto when cycling and mountain biking started becoming a bigger and bigger training tool. So I think it just got carried over.

I believe the military men called their gear "kit".

I think it started a long time ago.

I thought I might be the only one wondering the same thing...but I am old school. Remember when my son said "Dad, those new jeans are tight!". I looked down and said "No they're not, they are loose fit".

Here is the look I would get if I asked all my vintage buddies: "Hey, what do you think of my new kit"?

Since this was put up in moto, I assume we are talking about kit being used to describe its usage in that area.

My 71 Mach 3 came with a killer tool kit.

Talking suspension, an A kit is better than a B kit.

Then there's RM, with their dirt to street, ah, kit.

Smh. Spmlur.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

You thought 1776 was the last you'd seen of us.

Before long you'll even be spelling colour properly.

Every time I hear a dude talk about their "kit", I think they must be talking about their
make up and accessory bag they take with them to ballet class.
And that's cool and all . . . whatever you are into, man. I ain't judging. laughing laughing
