They are all manufactured of an outer surface of PVC plastic sheeting. Their size ranges from approximately 7" x 3" x 2" to 12" x 7". They are secured by means of a zippered, snap, hook and loop and/or drawstring closure. Your samples are being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the travel/toiletry bags of PVC plastic sheeting 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.
