The backpack has two zippered compartments. One compartment is fully insulated. The second compartment is fitted to contain the accessories, which consists of a metal thermos, cups, napkins, forks, spoons and storage containers. One side of the bag features a mesh storage pocket. The backpack measures approximately 13”(H) x 9”(W) x 6 ½”(D). Both compartments are secured by means of textile zippered closures. The bag features a top carrying handle and shoulder straps designed to be carried by hand or on the back. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the backpack with accessories will be 4202.92.3020, 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, backpacks.
