Dear Ms. Keith:

In your letter dated December 3, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client Omron Healthcare, Inc. of Vernon Hills, IL.

Velcro closure.

The two sections of each set are held together by a zipper. Each small section has a handle to enable the bag to be carried in the hand or attached to the belt. Each model comes with a shoulder strap which allows the bags to be carried as one when joined.

The applicable subheading for Models B1104, B1110 and B1111 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 or of textile materials, other.
