Dear Ms. Beegle:

In your letter dated October 24, 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 92-1310, is an insulated and lined gauntlet style glove with the shell constructed of a woven nylon material and the bottom half of the glove cuff made of a fleece fabric. Leather overlays cover the upper two-thirds of the palmside including the fingers and thumb, the middle of the sidewall between the thumb and the forefinger, and the innermost vertical portion of the backside thumb. Additional features include an elasticized wrist, a waterproof barrier, padded internal knuckle reinforcement, fourchettes, sidewalls, and a hook and clasp. The cumulation of glove features show a design for use in sport of skiing. The essential character of the glove is imparted by the woven nylon shell material.
