I know, I know, I'm a little late posting this response. I have used my tipi with a liner, without a liner, and with portions of the liner up. In the winter I always use a liner. In the summer I may use the back piece, or none at all.
I over heard a guy a few years ago telling a group of people about tipi liners. He explained how they created a draft for the fire/ smoke. He went on to explain that they made the tipi about 15 degrees cooler on a hot summer day. This was in Texas, where I live. I gotta tell you, my experience hasn't exactly mirrored his, when it comes to cooling off the lodge! Maybe my liner is faulty! My experience has been that it is hotter in the summer with the liner up. Want a breeze? Drop the liner and lift the cover.
