The bag is cylinder shape in design measuring approximately 5 inches in diameter by 8 inches tall with a textile carrying handle. It is secured by means of a zippered closure around the entire top circumference of the bag.

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

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

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.
