Default Best type of light for crawl space

Hey guys just wondering what you all prefer for lighting residential crawl spaces used for storage. Roughly 3' of working height in the past I've used pigtails with Bakelite covers and cages but would prefer something alittle more low profile. Just curious what you guys use

It's a 13 watt GU24 base CFL. Equivalent to about a 60w incandescent. If it's in a crawlspace it will get used so seldom that replacing the lamp probably won't be an issue. But regardless, the replacement lamp is a Leviton 9865.
