Need some visual inspiration to help motivate you to plan your next epic adventure?

Maybe Slipstream can help.

The newly launched service, dubbed “Netflix for Adventure Films,” is a monthly streaming service focused on outdoor recreation and action sports films. For $5 a month, users can access a curated library of nearly 200 outdoor films that can be hard to find on Netflix, Vimeo, or Youtube.

What’s currently available

There are nearly 200 movies currently available, which are separated into 9 genres. In addition, there are a handful “playlists” curated by outdoor celebrities. Right now, that means Brendan Leonard, Hazel Findley, Xavier de le Rue, and Seb Montaz.

Below is a complete listing of what’s currently available as of today, March 16, 2017. I’ve separated the list by genre, though some movies are listed in more than one. I didn’t included the playlists, as they’re comprised of movies already listed within the existing genres.

Slipstream’s catalog is comprised mainly of short films, roughly 30-60 minutes in length, with some considerably shorter plus a few nearing full-length. I’ve listed the run times of each movie within the lists so you can get a better sense of how much content is available for your favorite category.

Slipstream says they’ll be adding new movies every week.

My review

I recently signed up for Slipstream’s free month trial to give it a shot. I should note that I’m not a huge connoisseur of adventure movies. That said, I enjoy them enough to have organized a monthly adventure film movie night—dubbed MMMM, or Monthly Mountain Movie Mondays—with a bunch of my backpacking friends.

I tend to most appreciate the “it’s in the journey” style of movies—and not just fantastical shots of extreme action sports, where someone is snowboarding down an impossibly steep mountain slope or climbing some daring precipice sans harness.

I don’t ski, or climb, or surf, or run long distance. Or bike long distance, for that matter. So many of the traditional adventure genres above don’t directly appeal to me—though I can still enjoy a mountaineering movie even if I have no plans to ever summit K2.

So I’m especially curious how quickly and regularly they’ll be adding new titles. When I’m perusing the current catalog, I’m not struck by many movies that scream “I just have to see that!” But for me, that’s kinda what Slipstream might really be about—giving you some unfamiliar options to explore. We’ll see how often I take up this offer, or if this subscription lingers as I choose other options.

A few more random thoughts are in order.

In the basic performance test, I think Slipstream did just fine. The user interface is sparse and simplistic, but it worked for me without any issues.

The service is currently wedded to the website. There’s no Roku channel, AppleTV app, or dedicated iOS or Android app. If you want to watch this on the big screen in your living room, you’ll need to stream it from a website or mirror your phone or tablet. Keep that in mind.

Unfortunately, there’s not much preview information for each film—usually just a sentence or two—nor is there a link to any trailers. That makes it a bit hard to know what you’re getting into before you commit.

There’s no Netflix-like “queue” or saved watch list, which seems like an obvious feature to have. But maybe that’s coming down the road.

Curiously, the account settings menu is a blank profile graphic, which makes it feel like it’s a placeholder for a future user profile photo. Indeed, the playlists owners mentioned above all have what seem to be “verified” status, leading one to believe that some sort of social media or sharing component is on its way.

While there’s a prominent button for canceling your membership in the account settings, but there’s absolutely no indication of what your billing period is. My account indicates I’m still on the free trial, but I’d have to check my email to figure out what date I signed up and when that free trial expires.

The verdict

To be honest, I’m not yet sure if I’ll remain a Slipstream customer at the end of the free trial.

If you’re an adventure movie junkie, then this service is right up your alley. But I’m a bit concerned that the catalog won’t have enough content I want to watch after I blow through what’s currently available. That’s really my only major concern around this simple streaming service. If the content keeps up with your viewing habits and interests, then a $5 subscription seems well worth it. We’ll have to wait and see if it is for me personally. I’ll update the post at the end of the month.
