Side two is knit 100% polyester fleece fabric. One side on the vest features a stand up collar two zippered pockets, 4 ½ inch zipper at the bottom center back and a full front zippered closure. Side two features two front pockets at the waist without a zipper.

The vest is classifiable in Headings 6110 and 6113. As per Chapter 61 Note 8. “Garments which are, prima facie, classifiable both in heading 6113 and in other headings of this chapter, excluding 6111, are to be classified in heading 6113.”

The applicable subheading for the reversible vest, style #135J will be 6113.00.1012, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Garments, made up of knitted or crocheted fabrics of heading 5903, 5906 or 5907: Having an outer surface, impregnated, coated, covered, or laminated with rubber or plastics material which completely obscures the underlying fabric, Other.” The rate of duty will be 5.3% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
