They are pretty similar. The Eakin is stickier -- so it leaves more gunk on when you change the pouches. I only tried the adapt ring once a while ago, and I didn't like it as much, seemed like it didn't protect the skin as well for me. But a lot of people like the adapt rings better than the eakins.
You can ask for samples and try them both to see which you like better.
