A zipper encloses half the backpack. Attached to the zipper is a metal key ring, a chain and a plastic M&M character.

Your sample will be returned to the above address.

The applicable subheading for the PVC Backpack will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar containers with an outer surface of a sheeting of plastic, other. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.
