Two zippered pockets are incorporated on the front exterior and two carry handles are permanently attached to the top of the bag.

The applicable subheading for #PP241309 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.
