The suit is not an NPX Edge, but NP Surf Edge. NPX was integrated into NP SURF and the Edge is a step above the NPX Zealot suit and is the top of the line suit by the Pryde group (NP Surf). I love the Zealot, but the new Edge has liquid seams in the higher stress areas to make it even more durable. I've been on the NPX for many years and rode the NP Edge last year and it is a nicer suit.
The hood is separate, but being integrated won't make that much difference with flushing. Most of the flush comes from the front and the hood would be attached in the back. Getting the hood tucked in properly is the best way to reduce flush.
I loved these suits so much that I bought the majority of their inventory in the 6/5 and 5/4 and offering them at 40% of retail.
