Dear Mr. Pellegrini:

In your letter dated March 20, 2002, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Paris Asia, Ltd. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

Style 886508 is an insulated and lined men’s glove with a complete palmside constructed of a camouflage-printed dot-coated woven 55% polyester 45 % cotton fabric. The remainder of the outershell is made of a camouflage-printed woven 55% polyester 45 % cotton fabric. The glove features a waterproof barrier, an elasticized wrist, a hook and clasp, padded internal knuckle reinforcement, inner foam padding on the backside, a ribbed knit cuff and fourchettes. The cumulation of features on the glove shows a design for use in the sport of hunting. The essential character of the glove is imparted by the palmside dot-coated woven fabric material.
