Id never use fiberglass in there if there was any type of moisture issue. Use extruded foamboard instead (pink or blue) for the walls as wont be ruined if theres a moisture issue. The radiant reflective stuff is a waste of money imo. You wont much radiant heat build up down there and thats what its designed to prevent.
