The lunch bag measures approximately 9-1/2 inches long by approximately 6 inches wide by approximately 6-1/2 inches high. It is designed with a pocket on the backside that has a zipper closure. The inside of the top has a net pocket with a Velcro-like closure. This lunch bag has an adjustable webbed shoulder strap. The top of the lunch bag has a three sided nylon zipper closure.

The sample is returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the plastic insulated lunch bag will be 3924.10.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for tableware, kitchenware, other household articles...of plastic: tableware and kitchenware: other.
