wrapped fiberglass insulation

It seems to me a couple years ago I saw fiberglass batt insulation for sale where the batts (or maybe it was rolls) were completely wrapped in plastic, to cut down on the fibers getting everywhere. I didn't buy any then, but now I would like to. I have looked at a couple local big box stores recently but have not been able to find it. Did they stop making the stuff? Anyone seen it in stores? What exactly is the make and model? Thanks, -- H

The Owens Corning product is called "PinkPlus" <tm> and is sold at the local Lowes store.
Since I hate insulation, I was tempted to use it on my last project until I realized that most of my runs would need to be sliced in order to accommodate not OC rafter spacing.

Thanks. At least now I know what to ask for. My situation is that the attic is all floored over, with about 2 to 4 inches of rock wool under the boards. (There's only 5.5 inches of space under them anyway.) I figured I would just put fiberglass on top of the boards, except in the areas I use for storage. For a number of reasons I don't want to use the blow-in stuff. Also for a number of reasons I'd prefer to have the fiberglass be contained. -- H

Update - at Menards I found Johns-Manville "Comforttherm" - that is what I was thinking of. It is wrapped in thin perforated plastic so there is no vapor barrier but the fibers are basically contained. It's a little pricey but worth it in my view. I am a little disappointed at the uneven quality of the rolls - some seem to fluff up to the advertised thickness right away, others still haven't after a few days. -- H

Buy a box of BIG can liners at Sams Club. Snip off the bottoms and slide the resulting tube over the insulation. Use duct tape to keep overlaps controlled as needed. Total cost maybe $10 or so. Garbage bags are prettier but pricier. HTH
