RE: The tariff classification of ski gloves from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Balk:

In your letter dated June 11, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling, on behalf of Outdoor Products Inc. The provided samples will be returned as per your request.

Three samples of ski gloves were submitted for review. Style SM2043 is a lined and insulated gauntlet style glove constructed of a knitted fleece polyester outershell with a PVC coated textile palm patch which extends across the thumb. The glove features an internal padded vinyl covered textile reinforcement across the back of the knuckles, an inner waterproof barrier covering the complete upper part of the glove down to the wrist, inner foam covering the knuckles down to the cuff on the backside of the glove, pre-curved finger construction, an adjustable gauntlet drawstring closure, an elasticized wrist, fourchettes, sidewalls and a hook and clasp. The essential character of the glove is imparted by the outershell material.

The glove features an internal padded vinyl covered textile reinforcement across the back of the knuckles, a waterproof barrier, inner foam covering the knuckles down to the cuff on the backside of the glove, pre-
curved finger construction, an partially elasticized wrist, an adjustable textile strap on the back of the wrist, fourchettes, sidewalls, a hook and clasp and an flared cuff with coated fabric trim. The essential character of the glove is imparted by the outershell material.
