RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Beegle:

In your letter dated August 4, 2000, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Cabela’s Inc. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

The submitted sample, style 92-1313, is an insulated and lined gauntlet style glove with an outershell constructed of cowhide leather. The glove features a leather palm patch, a woven fabric patch at the palm pad, a partially elasticized wrist, “Cabela’s” embroidered on the backside leather wrist strap which is secured by means of a hook and loop fabric closure, a hook and clasp, fourchettes, internal knuckle padding and an adjustable elasticized drawstring bottom closure. The cumulation of glove features show a design suitable for use in cold weather motorcycling. The essential character of the glove is imparted by leather outershell material.
