The interior is lined and consists of a single compartment with no additional features. The top opening is secured by a flap with a hook and loop closure. The flap conceals a zippered pocket on the front exterior.

The general rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Kevin Gorman at 212-637-7091.
