Dear Ms. Hoem:

In your letter dated August 8, 2002, you requested a classification ruling. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

Style SL9118 is a lined and insulated gauntlet glove. With the exception of the palmside fingers which are made of leather, the balance of the outershell is constructed of a woven polyester fabric. The glove features an overlaid leather palm patch which extends across the thumb, pre-curved fingers, an elasticized wrist, a hook and clasp, padded internal knuckle reinforcement, “Columbia Sportswear Company” embroidered across the backside knuckle area, a fleece cuff which is sewn at the gauntlet hem, sidewalls and fourchettes. The cumulation of features on the glove shows a design for use in the sport of skiing.

The applicable subheading for the glove will be 6216.00.4600, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts: other: of man-made fibers: other gloves, mittens and mitts, all the foregoing specially designed for use in sports, including ski and snowmobile gloves, mittens and mitts.
