Use unfaced fiberglass to avoid trapping moisture. Also, the paper type backing is great food for mold in a damp crawlspace .

Yep, was watching Billy the Exterminator, roaches love to eat paper and make a home, (gross).

Check HDepot etc, there are cheap disposable nylon or cotton thin throwaway coveralls available. Paint dept?
