While Troop received a lot of love towards their footwear, it was the gear that stole the show. One piece in particular always stood out and that was the Troop Champion jacket. Most old enough to remember this iconic piece will remember the days of a young LL Cool J immortalizing the Troop Champion jacket with a variation that substituted ‘champion’ for LL Cool J
