RE: The tariff classification of ski gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Pellegrini:

In your letter dated February 8, 1999, on behalf of Paris Asia, Ltd,. you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The glove features a waterproof barrier insert, a vinyl palm patch which extends across the thumb, internal padded vinyl covered textile reinforcement across the back of the knuckles, an elasticized wrist, and a plastic hook and clasp.
