Additional features include a knitted fabric liner, an internal textile backed vinyl reinforcement and additional foam padding over the knuckles, a partially elasticized wrist, a hook and loop strap which provides tightening at the wrist, and a hook and clasp.

The applicable subheading for the glove will be 6116.10.0800, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: impregnated, coated or covered with plastics or rubber: other gloves, mittens and mitts, all the foregoing specially designed for use in sports, including ski and snowmobile gloves, mittens and mitts. The duty rate will be 5% percent ad valorem.
