The third layer will cover your body and shelter it from wind, snow and rain. It is better if these garments are manufacture with waterproof materials. This third layer should be the looser one, as it should not press the two previous layers.

As for your pants, you can wear jeans it they are bigger; otherwise, you will feel uncomfortable wearing them over your thermal pants.
