It is carried by two handles and closes with a zipper around the sides and across the top. Item #5015 is a leather u-zip travel kit. This bag features a zippered compartment inside. It closes with a zipper across the top and is carried by one handle. Your samples will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the travel kits, item #5014 and item #5015 will be 4202.91.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated, which provides for: Other, travel sports and similar bags with outer surface of leather, of composition leather, or of patent leather.
