There's a vast difference between "this item is made of a material that intrinsically grants resistance to cold" and "this item contains knowledge that you can use to give yourself resistance to cold", much greater than the distinction between temporary and permanent effects - would you say that a book that teaches you how to build a brick wall is itself a good building material?
