RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Ms. Miller:

In your letter dated January 28, 1998 you requested a classification ruling. The submitted sample will be returned as per your request.

The provided sample is a boy's lined and thickly insulated ski glove constructed of a woven man-made fiber outershell which will be imported as style ST 2005J (sizes 4 - 7) and style ST 2005B (sizes 8 - 18). The glove features a vinyl palm patch which extends across the thumb, internal padded vinyl covered textile reinforcement across the back of the knuckles, an elasticized wrist, fourchettes, a backside textile wrist tightener with a hook and loop fabric closure and a hook and clasp. The cumulation of features on the glove show a design for use in the sport of skiing. The essential character of the glove is imparted by the outershell material.

The applicable subheading for styles ST 2005J and ST 2005B will be 6216.00.4600, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts: other: of man-made fibers: other gloves, mittens and mitts, all the foregoing specially designed for use in sports, including ski and snowmobile gloves, mittens and mitts. The rate of duty will be 4.4 percent ad valorem.

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