The exterior panel is constructed of two panels, a knit pile fabric panel and a woven plaid fabric panel. The middle panel is made of knit fabric with polyester fiber backing. The interior panel is composed of woven fabric. The panels are sewn together. The cover is secured around the strap with strips similar to the VELCRO brand fastener.

The applicable subheading for the “Shoulder Buddy” will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.
