Attic Stairway Insulation

I'm looking for a pull-down attic stairway insulation product to match the R value of what is on the attic floor, probably R 20 something. The best I can find is a product with an R13 rating. Does anyone know of a product with a better R rating? Thanks:

Also, what's the reccomended R rating for an attic in Massachusetts? Go Patriots!

I made my own " Attic tent " out of ridgid CELOTEX foam insulation board . Worked great , and it was free . I found the insulation boards in a scrap pile . :D

free is better and you can easily make one sorry if you thought I was selling but you asked about something on the market a box can be made from foam and tape but some people want something already done and it is a good product

I'm sure it's an excellent product . The common theme around here seems to be minimizing cost while still accomplishing your goals . Making something yourself and saving the $200 + is just an option . Didn't mean to offend . :)
