The garment features a drawstring hood that is also lined with the Sherpa-like fabric, long sleeves with ribbed cuffs, a full front opening with a zipper closure, 2 front vertical pockets with zipper closures, and a ribbed bottom. Side panels extending from under the arm to the ribbed bottom are constructed from ribbed fabric.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6102.20.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for women’s overcoats, carcoatsand similar articles, knitted, other than those of heading 6104: of cotton: women’s. The duty rate will be 15.9% ad valorem.
