The item measures approximately 9 1/2 inches by 11 inches with 6 inch gussets. It is carried by means of double textile carrying handles. The top of the bag is secured by means of a hook and loop fastener.

The applicable subheading for Style 100, the diaper bag of (PVC) plastic sheeting material, 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 duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.
