It is manufactured with an exterior and interior surface of man-made fiber textile materials. The case features a front exterior full-width zippered pocket for additional storage. It measures approximately 21”(W) x 14”(H) x 7”(D).

The applicable subheading for the suitcase will be 4202.12.8070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases, vanity cases and similar containers, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man-made fibers.
