My DiveRite uses an elastic cover for compression (some models use a bungee cord). I snagged and tore a small hole in the elastic (a dab of AquaSeal made sure it wouldn't tear further). Does provide some air bladder protection, but the inner bladder always seems to keep a small amount of air trapped (not as bad as a Zeagle).
The 'unibody' Oxycheq doesn't seem to need this - it completely flattens when empty - a nise feature. It doesn't have a shoulder dump, which I like, but by not having it, it eliminates another point of failure, so I've gotten used to it. Its also super easy to rinse and clean as it's a single layer of material.
Both wings are circular, oval shaped which doesn't trap air as you change dive positions - a definite plus.
