Near bombproof cameras

Seeing how I like to be outdoors, at the clubs and bars, etc., I'm always in need of a new camera. I've been through two Canon Elphs and a Sony T100. All of their fates decided by the butterfingers of friends trying to take pictures of us. I refuse to buy the damage protection plan for one third of the camera's value because I know that in one year, something much better and cheaper will be out for a fraction of the cost. Olympus came out with their tough camera series, which is able to withstand freezing temps, drops, and is waterproof and shockproof to a certain degree. But, they were always twice as expensive AND the picture quality has always been subpar compared to other brands. Well finally, other makers are following suit like Fuji, Panasonic, and Sony. Outside magazine rounded up a few, check out brief descriptions here if you are in the market for a camera that you can take out on the trail, pools, or the bars.
