It features one storage compartment and a top drawstring closure. It is of a durable construction and suitable for repetitive reuse. It provides storage, protection, portability, and organization to a liquor bottle or other effects.

In your ruling request you suggested classification of the bottle bag under 6305.39.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sacks and bags, of a kind used for the packing of goods.
