Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by redbull88 Better than the huge roll and much better than lowes
Great insulation and much more appealing to the eye (and a better value) than the same insulation at Lowes. I applied this R30 between the joists of my new addition and was amazed how easy it was to instal over the continuous rolls. There was a noticeable difference in the floor temperature as soon as I installed it. I also covered the insulation with plywood to protect it from the elements and moisture.
Here's a tip, if you're buying more than a few try and get a pre bundled pack (they're wrapped in plastic mesh which makes transporting them much easier).
Pay attention to the rebates as well. Here in California we have a local utility rebate as well as the federal tax credit!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HomieDepo Terrible quality control!
I picked up a 4 of these in a large wrapped bundle at my local HD. I made the mistake of opening the bundles and packages the day I had to do the insulation work. To my horror, all of the pieces in *all 4* bags (44 total pieces) had the kraft paper glued on incorrectly/crooked/off-center. Some even had big splotches of deep pink coloring chemicals. One was so bad that the paper was glued on all crinkled on less than half of one side! The problem with the paper being off center is that one side has too much paper to staple and the other has none. Terrible, terrible, terrible. To think I was going to buy another product and figured it's better to go with the name brand. Now I have to compress them back in order to return them. Arrrgh.
Lesson: Check the ends before you buy this!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jimele excellent product
4' batts are easy to handle when installing overhead as i am in a crawlspace. eco touch is nowhere as itchy or as many fibers in the air as old fiberglass insulation & floor is much warmer now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by supersue Too bad it does not come in rolls
The R-30 with the backing is what I was looking for to put between the boards to staple up. The only thing I found was the cut pieces, this does make it easy to work with and easy to cut if you are careful. Remember to wear long shirts, mask, and something over the eyes in case something falls in. This stuff is very easy to work with and goes up fast and easy. I am going to put this up in between the floors to help with the sound and help keep the floors hot and cooler also. This is the reason I am picking the R-30. Both are easy to work with on the R-30 with and with out backing. The backing I need is to staple up if in the attic then go with out the backing. Between walls go with the backing where you need it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tony Good product and easy install
Product does not have the fibrous dust that other competitive products have which makes it much more user friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DEstefan Overall not a bad product
I just installed 36! packages of it in the crawl space. The packages kind of explode once you cut the plastic bag and the insulation expands to 3-4 times the size.
Some batts didn't expand to the 9-1/2" size but only to 4"-5" and I had to pull them to size.
The product cuts easily with a box cutter. There are little loose pieces but if you install it overhead there are still plenty of fibers to fall on you and make you itch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Royal169 Easy to install
Easy to install. Low dust level and no itch. Easy to cut with hd mineral wool insulation saw. House floor is noticeably warmer with r30 in the crawl space. HD online order system worked great. Pallet was ready for my pick up at the requested time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chesterton25 It has very little loose fibers
It is a good product with very little loose fibers. Just remember to open the bag where you need. The volume really increases when opened. It would be helpful for pricing it the square footage was included in the product description.
