The balaclava is a hood-like item that is snug-fitting and covers the head, neck, and a portion of the face. The balaclava features a braided drawstring around the hood portion and an internal tube that provides additional protection for the neck and the bottom portion of the face.

You state that you will also import styles 16350101 and 16350109 and that they are identical in fabric cont and style with the exception of the camouflage pattern.

The applicable subheading for the balaclavas, styles 16350101, 16350103 and 16350109 will be 6505.90.5090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Hats and other headgear, knitted or crocheted, or made up from lace, felt or other textile fabricOther: Of man-made fibers: Knitted or crocheted or made up from knitted or crocheted fabric: wholly or in part of braid, Other: Other.” The duty rate will be 6.8% ad valorem.
