RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Ashear:

In your letter dated May 27, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

Style 24601B is a lined girls’ gauntlet glove constructed of a woven polyester fabric with a foam coating on the underside. The backside has a quilted design on the outer surface. The glove features a coated fabric palm patch which extends across the thumb, padded internal knuckle reinforcement, backside inner foam padding, a waterproof barrier, an elasticized wrist, a hook and clasp, fourchettes and sidewalls, and a ribbed knit cuff. The glove will also be available in a different color as style 24601A. The cumulation of features on the gloves shows a design for use in the sport of skiing.
