    What is the context before this phrase? Just using "Equipment is" by itself seems odd. I would expect "Equipment used is..." or "That equipment is...".

    "The required equipment for this trip is gloves and glasses." (Although I would be more likely to say "The equipment required for this trip is gloves and glasses.")

Equipment is gloves and glasses.

Equipment is an uncountable noun.


You already said that you know this word as a 'mass noun'. Simply replace this with another mass noun and come up with an answer...

Knowledge [means] OR [mean] perception and learning

Certainly it is 'means', isn't it?


Equipment is gloves and glasses
