The bag is manufactured of polypropelene yarn which has an exterior coating of plastic. It measures approximately 29 1/2"(H) x 20"(W).

The applicable subheading for the duffle style travel bag of plastic 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. The rate of duty for 1998 will remain the same.
