RE: The tariff classification of a "Compression Pack" from China.

Dear Ms. Berry:

In your letter dated September 11, 1997, on behalf of Crazy Creek Products, Inc., you requested a classification ruling for a "Compression Pack".

The sample submitted is style 2080 "Compression Pack". The literature attached to the sample submitted indicates it is 13 inches diameter and 22 inches high and has a 3600 cubic inch capacity. It is described as being a compression pack for a sleeping bag and also serves as a day pack when the user reaches camp. The "compression bag" feature is only used when hiking with the sleeping bag. The item is a travel/sport bag of 100 percent nylon woven fabric. Your sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the travel/sport bag of 100 percent nylon woven fabric will be 4202.92.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 19.3 percent ad valorem.

The travel/sport bag falls within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Kevin Gorman at 212-466-5893.
