The Duralex Picardie tumbler is made from shatter-resistant tempered glass but is still lightweight and durable enough to survive most falls onto linoleum. It is stackable for easy storage and dishwasher-safe and features a contoured design that catches the natural way fingers wrap around a glass.

The Bormioli Rocco Rock Bar tempered glass tumbler is even more durable, surviving 8-foot drops onto linoleum as well as 42-inch drops onto concrete. It is also stackable and dishwasher-safe, but features a chunkier lip than the Duralex Picardie. As of January 2016, the Bormioli Rocco Rock Bar tumbler is also more widely available, sold online through Amazon.com, Crate & Barrel, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Target.

The Ikea Pokal, which is only available through Ikea, is another durable, tempered glass tumbler. Unlike the Duralex or Bormioli tumblers, however, the Pokal is not stackable, and is much heavier.

All three tumblers feature thick bottoms to help prevent them sliding on a wet table. They also share tempered glass construction, which make them more durable and break-resistant than untreated glassware. They are also safer than untreated tumblers, because if they do break, they crumble into relatively dull bits instead of sharp shards.
