Summer is prime time for cookouts, dining al fresco, and outdoor happy hour. As you plan your next barbecue or patio cocktail night, don't forget some of the most important but frequently-overlooked items: unbreakable wine and beer glasses. Outdoor drinkware has come a long way since its inception — many options today aren't just durable, but attractive, too.

The best outdoor glasses look like "real" drinkware but can handle the dishwasher and even getting dropped on the deck (just don't make a habit of it!). They come in a variety of shapes and styles, from stemless to multicolored to extra large vessels, and thanks to some amazing Amazon deals, there's never been a better time to buy than now. Scroll down to see eight popular outdoor glasses that Amazon shoppers love — then pick out your favorite for stylish, shatter-free happy hours all summer long.

Ello Cru Stemless Wine Glasses, Set of 4

View at Amazon ($25)

Not a fan of plastic cups? This set of four stemless wine glasses is made from glass. It's an easy-to-remove, machine washable silicone sleeve that keeps them protected from the elements (the elements being, largely, clumsy drinkers). Each 17-ounce glass comes with a uniquely colored sleeve that does double duty as a coaster — no more sliding or condensation rings on the table. One reviewer commented that these were "great glasses for a man-child," who has broken "countless" wine glasses. He, along with many of the other 1,500+ five-star raters, noted it was nice to be able to see the wine through the patterned silicone sleeve.

Michley Unbreakable Stemmed Wine Glasses, Set of 6

View at Amazon ($46)

These elegant 15-ounce glasses are ideal for traditional wine drinkers who prefer a stem to hold onto. With a smooth, thin rim and sturdy base, they marry beauty with practicality, making them a smart purchase for uncompromising wine drinkers. Their design can accommodate all wines, but if you're a stickler for pairing wines with the properly shaped glass, you'll appreciate the option to buy either Bordeaux or Burgundy-specific glasses. The reviews are full of customers raving at the high quality aesthetics, including this one who gifted them to someone living in the ultimate danger zone for delicate wine glasses: with a rambunctious kitten.

Host Insulated Wine Glasses, Set of 4

View at Amazon ($35)

These glasses were made for hot beach days. The double-insulated walls are filled with a cooling gel that freezes quickly and stays cool for hours, so even if your bottle of rosé has gotten warm, you don't have to find a freezer. There's a wide silicone grip around the upper third of the glass to keep your hands from getting cold (and your wine from getting warm). Reviewers love these glasses, and many note they're great for way more than just wine. "Hubby uses them for bourbon and Coke," explained one customer who also uses them to serve her grandkids apple juice slushies.

These are some of the best-looking beer glasses you'll ever see… in any category. Made from insulated stainless steel, these handsome glasses can hold 16.9 ounces of beer (or, as some reviewers note, mixed drinks).

The gently sloped conical shape gives them a sophisticated flair that you'll be reaching for long after pool season is over.

D'Eco Unbreakable Glasses, Set of 4

View at Amazon ($28)

Looking for something simple that fits the bill (or rather, holds the beer)? These no-frills traditionally-shaped pilsner glasses are perfect for craft beer connoisseurs. They're also shatter-proof, thanks to BPA-free Tritan (a plastic-adjacent material) and a thick reinforced base. These are some of the top-rated plastic beer glasses on Amazon, due to their crystal-clear walls that users say couldn't look more like glass unless they actually were glass.
