The bag features double webbed handles, a main storage compartment, and a top opening secured with hook-and-loop fastener. The bag is designed to provide protection, portability, organization, and storage to accessories and personal effects during travel and is suitable for prolonged reuse. This office is retaining the bag as an official sample.

The applicable subheading for the shopping bag will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for travel, sport and similar bags, with outer surface of plastic sheeting, other. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.
