The bag is wholly covered with a non-transparent Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) plastics material which is embossed to simulate a textile fabric and is backed by a nylon fabric. The PVC constitutes the exterior surface of the bag.

The applicable subheading for item PP107881 will be number 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of plastic sheeting or of textile materials, other. The duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
