RE: The tariff classification of a backpack from China.

The bag has a top carry handle of nylon webbing and two adjustable, permanently attached shoulder straps that enable use as a backpack. A large, full-length pocket with a front flap and center snap closure is located on the front bottom exterior of the bag. The interior of the bag is unlined and non-compartmentalized.

The applicable subheading for model #YFH-001 will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports, and similar bags, other. The rate of duty will be 20% ad valorem.
