What is the purpose of a tipi liner?
The Tipi Liner is three pieces of canvas sewn to follow the contour of the bottom 6 ft. of the tipi. The liner is used in the summer to provide the needed upward flow of air for ventilation and also to help draft smoke from your fire up through the smoke flaps. In the winter, the liner provides an insulation barrier against the cold and wind as well as the drafting qualities for the smoke from your fire. The liner hangs from a rope you would string from pole to pole around the inside of the tipi. The bottom 6 inches can be left on the ground to keep out cold winds and any small critters that may be wandering the area.
What is the purpose of a tipi ozan?
An Ozan is a drop ceiling for the back part of your living area in a tipi. It is to be placed above the liner and will help to keep the the living area warm and dry. The ozan accomplishes this by shedding the water behind the tipi liner. You can also hang another piece of fabric (maybe a colorful one) and use it as a privacy shield. This can also keep bugs out of the back compartment while you sleep. You can use it as your sleeping quarters.
What are the differences in the material available for your tipis?
"Fabric Choice is equally as important as tent size. It is the fabric that will provide the protection from the elements, maintain a warm dry interior, stand up to rugged handling and be of good value for your money. This is asking a lot from most fabrics and is the reason we offer several different fabric constructions in our tents and tipis. Each fabric we use provides a little different combination of important features and benefits for your consideration. 12oz. Natural Canvas - The 12oz. per square yard, single filled material is a rugged fabric that is very economical. Even though it is our starting price level in tents, is it by no means a cheap fabric. The natural water repellent qualities of the fabric provide a nice dry tent, especially after it has shrunk up a bit. The material is breathable and has good insulating qualities compared to lighter weight fabrics. The 12oz. per square yard material is a sensible and economic choice. 14.9oz. Natural Canvas - 14.9oz. per square yard, single filled material is a popular tent material and for good reason. It is tough, water repellent and warm. Because it has 20% more cotton woven in it than the 12oz. material, it has superior insulating qualities. The additional cotton also provides a tighter, more water repellent and more durable fabric. Unless you are very concerned about overall weight, the 14.9oz. per square yard fabric is our recommendation for your wall tent. An argument could be made that this fabric will actually cost you less due to it's probable longer life and the reduced likelihood of its needing repairs. Treated Canvas: 10.10oz. Marine Treated Army Duck - A premium cotton fabric more tightly woven than the single filled variety, creating excellent strength and durability in a lighter weight base fabric. Shrinkage is greatly reduced with this fabric. We add treatment to create a truly top quality, dry finish, water and mildew resistant tent fabric. 10.10oz. Marine/Flame Treated Army Duck - Our treated 10.10oz. per square yard army duck is double filled and is offered for its flame resistant qualities, meeting the flammability standards of CPAI-84, an industry wide standard. Flame resistant fabric is one of the most asked for features on our tents. In fact, flame resistant tents are required for use in California, Minnesota, Michigan, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York. Our treated 10.10oz. fits that bill. In addition to being flame resistant, it is also treated for water repellency and mildew resistance. This fabric makes an excellent choice where a durable, economic and flame resistant material is important. Polaris - This fabric is a 50% cotton/50% polyester blend. This is an excellent fabric used in our tents and tipis. It has several qualities that make this fabric sturdy and long lasting. It is UV resistant, breathable, mildew resistant, water repellent and flame resistant, meeting the flammability standards of CPAI-84, an industry wide standard. The Polaris is flexible in extreme temperatures and is recommended for tents and tipis that will be set up for extended periods of time."
