Dear Ms. McLain:

In your letter dated November 3, 2003, you requested a classification ruling for an equipment bag.

The sample submitted is identified as a “Hockey Bag”. No style number was submitted. The item is a travel bag designed to contain clothing and other personal effects during travel. It is manufactured with an exterior surface of polyester man-made fiber textile material with PVC backing. You have indicated that the intended use for the bag will be to hold hockey equipment. The bag measures approximately 33” x 16.5” x 20” and features double carrying straps on the top of the bag as well as on either end. The top of the bag is secured by means of two heavy-duty zippered closures. The front exterior of the bag features a pocket of transparent polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic to hold identification. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the equipment bag 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. The duty rate will be 17.8 percent ad valorem.
