Tumblers are lightyears ahead of where they once were, keeping drinks at the perfect temperature, without condensation, and easy to carry or fit in your cup holders. If you're in the market for upgrading your on-the-go cup, we'll walk you through the best designs and our favorite picks.

How to Choose the Best Insulated Tumbler

When selecting your tumbler, you have three materials to choose from: plastic, stainless steel or glass. All three versions are reusable, making them a smart alternative to disposable water bottles and cups, and they prevent condensation — no sweaty exterior or water rings.

Plastic: Plastic tumblers are double insulated with either air or foam between the two walls. Air-insulated options maintain your drink's temperature for the shortest time (around two to six hours), yet they are significantly lighter than their stainless-steel counterparts.

Stainless Steel: Most stainless-steel tumblers are vacuum-insulated, with an airless gap between the inner and outer layer that provides the most effective heat and cold retention, maintaining your beverage's temperature for up to 16 hours. In addition to being dishwasher safe, their metal construction is more durable and longer-lasting than a plastic tumbler.

Glass: Glass vessels are also a popular reusable drinkware option because, like stainless steel, glass keeps iced beverages cool for up to eight hours. Unlike steel, glass is fragile and requires a silicone sleeve or metal encasement to ensure it remains in one piece.

We've found top-rated insulated tumblers that go from summer to winter, car rides to outdoors and workday to happy hour. Head out for your everyday and extraordinary days with your essential cup of iced coffee, tea or sparkling water.

Best Everyday Insulated Tumbler


My drink of choice is unsweetened tea with lemon, and my YETI keeps it cold and not watered down for almost the entire day. The 30-ounce design with the narrow base fits in my car's cup holders and is similar to grabbing a large drink through a drive-thru — but with the benefit of being reusable. Though the Rambler comes with a magnetic sliding lid, I prefer the straw top.

Best Versatile Insulated Tumbler


If you've been on the Internet at all in the past year, then chances are you've seen the viral Stanley Quencher Tumbler. The upgraded H2.0 FlowState Tumbler features a versatile rotating lid that allows you to choose from three positions: a straw opening, an opening for sipping and a full-cover top to prevent spills and leaks. The 40-ounce design will keep ice iced for up to two days and drinks cold for up to 11 hours.

Best Insulated Tumbler With Handle


For those who love a handle to tote around their tumbler, the Simple Modern 40-Ounce Trek Tumbler is your cup. The double-walled insulated interior keeps the drink inside cold for 24 hours, and the tumbler and its parts are dishwasher safe. The best part, though? The tapered bottom allows it to fit perfectly in your car's cup holder.

Best Insulated Water Bottle


My brother works outside the majority of the day and grabs his ice-filled Hydro Flask before he heads out the door. He says it keeps his water cold with ice still remaining at the end of his long workday. The durable stainless-steel design is tough enough to take to any job or adventure. In addition, to the fan-favorite water bottle, they also have a 20-ounce tumbler.

Best Glass Insulated Tumbler


Steel tumblers keep cold drinks cool, but no one talks about that ever-so-subtle metallic taste. The Ello Devon Glass Tumbler combats that pesky metallic smell and taste with a silicone-sleeve exterior and glass insert. The glass insert ensures your beloved bubbly keeps its original flavor, and each tumbler is dishwasher-safe (except the lid).

Best Ceramic Insulated Tumbler


This travel mug has the best of both worlds as it features ceramic and stainless-steel material. Double-walled, vacuum-insulated stainless steel keeps drinks hot or cold, while the ceramic lining ensures you only have the fresh flavor of your beverage with no metallic taste. The leak-proof lid is easy to clean and ultra-secure. Did we mention that it's also super sleek?

Best Spill-Proof Insulated Tumbler


We love the versatility that comes with the Iron Flask Nomad Tumbler, which comes with two insulated lids: a 100 percent leak-proof flip lid and a splash-proof straw lid with two straws. The double-wall insulation keeps your cold drinks cold, all with a no-sweat exterior. Available in 16, 20, 24 and 28 ounces, you can find the cup that best fits your needs.

Best Insulated Tumbler for Kids

$16.79 $15.75

The Munchkin Miracle 360 Sippy Cup is my go-to cup for little ones, and now they have it in a stainless-steel design. The 360-degree lid is helpful for kids learning to drink, and from personal experience, the cup is very easy to clean. The included lid helps prevent spills when you toss it in a bag.

Best Insulated Tumbler for Kids With Straw


Kids deserve stylish tumblers, too, and these printed designs by Simple Modern check out. The pint-sized travel cups are 12 ounces and are available in a variety of unique patterns to fit your kids' personalities and interests. Plus, each insulated tumbler is dishwasher safe and comes with a reliable lid and straw for spill-free sipping.

Best Insulated Tumbler for Iced Coffee

$29.99 $16.99

Glass is safe and doesn't absorb flavors and odors, making it a favorite material for housing your iced coffee, fruit teas or vegetable smoothies. Food-grade silicone on this tumbler provides great grip and prevents condensation, and the whole thing is topped with a natural bamboo lid to prevent leaks.

Best Insulated Wine Tumbler

$34.95 $33

It's hard to beat the designs of Corkcicle, especially if you're a fan of Rifle Paper Co. like I am. These wine tumblers are triple-insulated to keep your red or white chilled for at least nine hours. The sleek design is easy to hold and is topped with a sliding, shatterproof lid.

Best Insulated Beer Tumbler

$22.99 $17.25

As the weather heats up, you want to keep your beer as cold as possible. The vacuum-insulated construction of the Coleman Brew Tumbler chills your brew for 15 hours, perfect for outdoor grilling and hanging outside. Forgot your bottle opener? No worries. There's an integrated bottle opener on the bottom of this tumbler.

Best Tumblers to Buy in Bulk

$47.88 (Pack of 12)

This colorful set is ideal for a party, bridal shower, family gathering, playdate or last-minute hangout. Each tumbler has a different color so that everyone can keep track of their drink, and the splash-proof lids allow for full fun without worrying about major spills.
