It manufactured of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic sheeting. The backpack will be presented packaged with self-adhesive decorative decals. It measures approximately 8 ½” x 8 ½” x 3 ¼”. The top of the bag is secured by means of a textile zippered closure. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for Style MX-032 will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.
