RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s pair of ski/snowboard pants from China

Dear Ms. Park:

In your letter dated June 29, 2006, on behalf of Roxy, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number F954410 “Gemstar,” is a woman’s pair of ski/snowboard pants constructed of a shell composed of a woven 100% nylon fabric that has a visible coating on the inner surface and sealed seams at the front and back rise. The garment is lined with a woven 100% polyester fabric in the body, a knit mesh polyester fabric in the upper portion of the rear panels and has a nonwoven batting insulation.

The garment has a fly front opening with a zipper closure that is covered by a placket that has two snaps, a hook and loop closure and a metal hook and eye closure on the front portion of the waistband. The waistband features six belt loops, a metal buckle on each side of the front portion of the waistband, and an elasticized, adjustable rear belt that has a hook and loop fastener at each end and is partially covered by a self-fabric tunnel in the rear. The pants have two front pockets with zipper closures and two rear pockets with hook and loop fasteners below the waistband, a pocket with a zipper and a flap with a snap closure on each thigh, a zipper opening with a mesh gusset along the inner seam of each thigh area, long hemmed legs that have a zipper opening with a gusset at the ankle area, a pocket secured by a zipper and a flap with a snap closure on the lower portion of the left leg, hidden elasticized leg sleeves, a side opening with a hook and loop fastener and a snap closure. The “Roxy” tradename is featured at various areas on the garment.

The sample is being returned to you as you have requested.
