RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Pellegrini:

In your letter dated February 5, 2003, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Paris Asia, Ltd. The sample will be returned as requested.

Style 888454-113 is a full-fingered glove with an outer shell made from polyester fleece and a fleece inner liner encased in a layer of fiberfill insulation covered with foam and a waterproof insert. There is an internal fabric-backed vinyl strip with extra padding over the knuckle area and additional foam sheeting inserted over the back of the hand. Other features include an adjustable hook and loop strap on the back of the partially elasticized wrist, a fabric-backed textured vinyl palm/thumb reinforcement patch, a rib-knit extended cuff, and a hook and clasp.

The cumulation of features show a design for use in the sport of alpine skiing. The textile shell imparts essential character.
