Style 31149 is a women’s nylon rain jacket from Hong Kong with a shell made from a woven 100% nylon fabric with a waterproof breathable P/U (polyurethane) visible coating on the inner surface. The jacket has a full front opening with a zipper closure that extends to the top of the standup collar, a removable rollup hood with an elasticized drawstring with cordlocks, an elasticized drawstring with cordlocks through the bottom hem, slant zippered pockets at the waist and a mesh lining.

The applicable subheading for style 31149 will be 6210.50.5020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5903, 5906 or 5907: other women’s or girls’ garments of man-made fibers: other: anoraks (including ski-jackets), windbreakers and similar articles. The duty rate will be 7.1 percent ad valorem.
