Sorry you've had a leak. No fun.
I didn't think that Adapt stuff did much of anything. My output tends to be on the thick side too, what I do (at home anyway) is keep a small plastic cup or bottle in the bathroom, and prior to emptying, I pour some water into the pouch, press lightly around on it, and then empty. Everything comes out easy, and then the pouch feels clean and lighter to me.
I have even started carrying around an empty water bottle for when I am using a public bathroom (which I toss out afterwards), just because I have gotten used to being able to empty quickly and easily.
You'll find your own tricks in time, hang in there.
