RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Ms. Beegle:

In your letter dated May 19, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Cabela’s Inc. The provided samples will be returned as per your request.

Six samples were submitted for review. Style 92-0007 is a half fingered glove constructed of a camouflage printed polyester fleece fabric. The glove features a sewn on mitten style cover that can be placed over the fingers or secured with a hook and loop tab when not in use. A neoprene coated fabric reinforcement partially covers the palm and extends up the forefinger. A second reinforcement covers the palmside thumb fingertip. Additional features include insulation, a fabric lining and a ribbed knit cuff.

Style 92-0008 is a mitten version of style 92-0007 in the same fabrication. Style 92-0008 features a slit in the palm made of a neoprene coated fabric which allows the wearer to extend their fingers out to reach a trigger or to reload. The mitten also features a neoprene coated fabric reinforcement which partially covers the palm and extends up the thumb, and a partially elasticized wrist with a ribbed knit cuff.

Style 92-1311 is a gauntlet glove constructed of a camouflage printed polyester fleece fabric. The glove features a neoprene coated fabric reinforcement which partially covers the palm and extends up the forefinger, a palmside thumb fingertip reinforcement which extends partially around the backside, an elasticized wrist, a backside adjustable textile wrist strap, fourchettes, insulation, a fabric lining, a waterproof insert and an adjustable elasticized drawstring bottom closure.

The glove features a neoprene coated fabric reinforcement which partially covers the palm and extends up the forefinger, a palmside thumb fingertip reinforcement which extends partially around the backside, fourchettes, and a ribbed knit cuff.

Style 92-1348 is a child’s glove constructed of a camouflage printed polyester fleece fabric. The glove features a coated fabric palm patch which also covers the thumb, an elasticized wrist, a backside adjustable textile wrist strap, fourchettes, insulation, a fabric lining, a waterproof insert, and an adjustable elasticized drawstring closure with an extended ribbed knit cuff.

Style 92-1349 is a child’s gauntlet styled mitten version of style 92-1348.

The cumulation of features on all the glove styles show design for use in the sport of hunting.
