I use the Bormioli Rocco Arena Highball, 11 oz. as a milk/juice/water glass. I searched far and wide for this size, dimension, and heft, but found that most glasses with this capacity are either too squat and wide, or too lightweight. This one is perfect for my needs. Other sites with this same product mention the ribbing as a feature that improves the grip. Nonsense! Sur la table deserves credit for accuracy in leaving that out, because the ribbing is on the inside!! It is a nice design feature, but does nothing for the grip. All in all, I highly recommend the Bormioli Rocco Arena Highball glass which is as lovely as it is practical.
