Also, where are you going in Spain. Madrid is frigid this time of the year. Not miami-like in the least. You could still wear them, but it might not be in the way you were expecting.
As to the first point: Totally agree, except I'll have at least two other pairs of pants with me, one regular jeans, the other a pair of cotton/nylon theory pants with some extra pockets I wear for long flights.
As to the second: It'll be Barcelona in March, which I think will be somewhat warmer, but correct me if I'm wrong.
