RE: The tariff classification of a backpack, water bottle holder, stadium seat and an insulated cooler bag from China.

Dear Mr. Saker:

In your letter dated July 11, 2002, on behalf of Roundhouse Products, Inc./ a Targus owned Co., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted four samples with your request. They are as follows:

Item 1, the backpack, style GBBP/”Glacier Baby” is designed and chiefly used to provide storage protection, organization and portability for clothing or other personal effects, including baby bottles during travel. It has a removable changing mat, cellular phone pocket, two insulated bottle pockets, three storage pockets and a large storage container. The exterior surface is wholly of a sheeting of plastics that is embossed to simulate a woven textile material. As presented, the changing pad, cell phone holder and travel bag is considered to be a set and will be classified accordingly. The backpack will impart the essential character of the set.

Item 2, the insulated bottle cooler, style BG0032/”Glacier Gear” (catalog style ANBC-10) is an insulated carrier designed to contain a one liter water bottle. It is wholly covered on the exterior surface with a sheeting of plastic.

Item 3, no style number submitted, is a stadium folding seat with carry handle and shoulder strap. It is manufactured with an exterior surface of man-made fiber textile material. The item features an insulated storage flap pocket on the rear exterior.

Item 4, the collapsible cooler bag, style 72PKCRT/”Glacier Gear”, is an insulated cooler bag designed to hold/insulate and transport food and beverages. The bag is designed with “in-line” skate wheels, front accessory pocket with hook and loop fastener, a shoulder strap and telescopic pull handle. It is wholly covered on the exterior surface with a sheeting of plastic.

Your samples are being returned as requested.
