You've got the basic's..
I'd suggest in a "pocket-belt", if your diving in this country possibly a harness (you will more than likely need this if diving with a dry suit).
I personally prefer to buy the weights, but hiring them is an alternative, and if you go on holiday you can take the belt(s) with you which saves a lot of hassle weighting yourself!
Then i'd suggest a BCD, then regulators & Octopus.
i think thats more less it, heres one suggestion..
Look in Argos, there's a sports bag which is on Wheels & two huge Pockets, for approx 20, perfect size and has good protection for all your equipment.
Maybe some spare snorkel to Mask clips, and swim ear drops, as far as the exposure suit goes goto a specialisty and get measured up properply, that way you have some come-back if its not right.
If you want specific Branded stuff then theres a lot of ppl on here that will sure keep you entertained on it!
