RE: The tariff classification of gloves from Pakistan.

Dear Ms. Trout:

In your letter dated June 22, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling, on behalf of Rehan Corporation.

Four samples of gloves were submitted for review. Style NGL 014 is half fingered glove with a palm side constructed of cabretta leather and a backside constructed of knitted spandex material. The glove features a reinforced leather palm patch with inner foam padding which extends across the thumb and up the forefinger, backside thumb and fourchettes constructed of knitted spandex material, "NAZRAN" printed across the backside coated fabric tab wrist tightener which closes by means of hook and loop fabric, coated fabric trim at the wrist and around the backside keyhole vent.

Style NGL 023 is lined winter bike glove with a complete palmside constructed of a synthetic leather with inner padding. The backside of the glove is constructed of a knitted man-made fabric with inner foam padding and insulation. The glove features a partially elasticized wrist, " NAZRAN" is printed across the backside vinyl knuckle reinforcement, a synthetic leather palm patch which extends to the thumb crotch and knitted fabric fourchettes.

Style NGL 020 is a lined gauntlet style mountain bike glove with a palmside constructed of cabretta leather palm. The backside of the glove, as well as the backside thumb and a portion of the palmside gauntlet is constructed of a nylon mesh fabric with inner foam padding. On the backside the glove has a three dimensional sewn-on vented molded plastic knuckle protector which extends up the fingers, "NAZRAN" is printed at the lowest part of the protector. Additional features include knitted fabric sidewalls and fourchettes, inner foam padding at the palm and partially up the fingers, leather reinforced thumb crotch, partially elasticized wrist, and an elastic wrist band which is secured by means of a vinyl tab hook and loop fabric wrist tightener. Style NGL 018 is the half fingered glove version of NGL 020.

Please note that Rule No. 6 of The Textile Fiber Products Identification Act requires the use of generic fiber names when marking textile products.

The cumulation of features on all the styles show a design for use in the sport of biking.
