Dear Ms. Studeny:

In your letter dated May 22, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Richlu Manufacturing. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

Style F04-G28 is a glove constructed of a 2-ply fabric consisting of a camouflage printed knitted polyester fabric on the outer surface laminated to a brushed knitted fabric on the underside. Coated fabric overlays with foam coated padding sewn on the underside are located at the base of the palmside fingers and on a portion of the lower palm. Coated fabric reinforcements are found on the fingertips and at the thumb/forefinger crotch extending up the outer edge of the thumb and forefinger. Additional features include knitted fabric fourchettes and a wrist tightener which is secured with hook and loop fasteners. The cumulation of features on the glove shows a design for use in the sport of hunting.
