Dear Mr. McQuade:

In your letter dated March 15, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a backpack.

The backpack is of 100% man-made fiber textile materials. The outer surface is of man-made fiber textile materials. The front panel has three solar panels with associated wiring built into the body. The item is primarily a backpack. It measures approximately 14”(H) x 12”(W) x 5”(D).

The applicable subheading for the backpack will be 4202.92.3020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of man-made fibers, backpacks. The rate of duty will be 17.6 percent ad valorem.
