And experts say that people around the globe are going to be scoring camping equipment for decades.

Oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer talked with The Wall Street Journal about the luxury items riding the waves.

“The Yetis are still out there,” he told the paper. “The coolers will keep circling the world. You’ll be getting reports of people finding Yetis for the next 30 years.”
