RE: The tariff classification of coveralls from Poland.

Dear Mr. Kwiatkowski:

The submitted sample is a ProPlus Gard Cool Gear PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Coverall, Styles 60401, 60402, 60403 and 60404.

The coverall is anti-static, breathable and lint-free, and is used as protective clothing for spray paint applications in the industrial and automotive market.

You suggest classification in subheading 6204.63.30, which calls for water resistant trousers or breeches; the item is neither, it is a coverall.
