My suit would only last about 20 seconds during on of those, and they were so frequent (seriously, I don't think they were more than five minutes apart) that I couldn't go very far away from my ship to look for resources.
One last tip for those horrible planets. For some reason, even on planets that have 300 degree atmospheres (or -200 degree ones), caves--even very tiny ones--are balmy and pleasant. With the grenade attachment on your weapon, you can make a cave anywhere (until your ammo runs out). It's a bit tedious, but it allows long-distance travel on hostile worlds.
