How do I get the rain cover to go into the zipped compartment after taking it out for the first time? I can’t fold it down small enough!
I will probably not make you happy but that will be very very hard. Most raincovers are very hard to fold to a small size, so the only way really is by trying... Otherwise, I would recommend either to get (or have made) a pouch where it will be pushed in, and such a pouch can be thrown into the basket easily. Another way (my way) is not to take the rain cover with - only if you actually expect raining, I mean it is super bulky and takes up a lot of space... Last resprt is to get an expensive rain cover (ie. the Elodie Details one) that folds down small and use that.
Sorry for not having a better answer! ^_^
