The items are soft sided without a rigid foundation and have an exterior surface of man-made fiber textile material. The bags are specially shaped and fitted to contain a rifle. The interiors are padded. Each bag features a zippered top opening, which runs the entire length of the bag, webbed carrying straps and handles. Your samples are being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for styles 28530704 and 28530807 will be 4202.92.3031, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of man-made fibers, other.
