RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Ashear:

In your letter dated February 13, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your customer, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. The provided samples will be returned as per your request.

Style 20542210 is a mitten with a sewn-in four-fingered glove liner. The palmside of the mitten is constructed of a woven polyester fabric, the balance of the mitten is made of a bright orange man-made fabric. The mitten has slits across the upper palm and palmside thumb which allow the wearer to expose their glove-covered fingers. The glove liner has a slit in the index finger. Additional features include a palm patch made of vinyl-coated material, a fleece lining, an elasticized wrist, a hook and clasp, backside inner foam padding and a ribbed knit cuff.

Styles 20542410 and 20542411 are men’s lined and insulated gloves with a palmside from the fingertips and extending approximately one inch below the wrist constructed of a woven polyester fabric. The complete backside is constructed of bright orange fabric. The glove features leather overlays at the center of the palm extending to the thumb and on the palmside fingertips, an elasticized wrist, a ribbed knit cuff and a hook and clasp.

Noting the features, we believe all styles show design for use in the sport of hunting.

The applicable subheading for all styles will be 6216.00.4600, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts: other: of man-made fibers: other gloves, mittens and mitts, all the foregoing specially designed for use in sports, including ski and snowmobile gloves, mittens and mitts. The rate of duty will be 2.8 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Brian Burtnik at 646-733-3054.
