Dear Mr. Suk:

In your letter dated April 29, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling for travel bags.

The items are identical except for size. The small bag measures approximately 7” x 9” and the large bag measures 16” x 16”. Each is of 11 MIL clear polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic sheeting and has a top zipper closure. The zipper collar and seams are stitched. The bags are designed for repetitive and prolonged reuse. Each possesses the same useful characteristics of storage, protection and organization. Your samples are being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the travel bags will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic, other. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.
