We've been using Duralex drinking glasses since my daughter was about two. She's fine with them, and they survive accidents without breakage.
Admittedly based on a small sample size, kids seem to live up to your expectations of them. (That's once they've mastered fine motor control and gained reasonable hand strength, of course.) In our case, she tends to treat plastic things rougher than the plates and glasses she sees "big people" using. We swap in sippy cups for traveling.
While accidents do happen, they are exactly that: accidents, worthy of guidance and not punishment. In more than two years we've had very few drops/rolloffs and no breaks.
Duralex was the canonical glassware of French schools for many years (see the wikipedia history of Duralex), so there's at least something backing up its claims.
