http://www.ptmart.com has a whole slew of different size & density rollers for cheap. I originally heard about the site from Greg.

I got my foam roll from Target....came with a dvd also. Its from Mark V (coreperformance). I cant remember how expensive it was but it was under $20 dollars for the dvd and foam roller.

Hey Scott,
I use a ~12 inch-long roller and do all my rolling on it, though it's only big enough for one leg at a time. It's great for portability since I carry it on the train to the gym. I mainly just roll the hamstrings, quads, hips, it band...I'm not 100% sure of what additional benefits the longer rollers provide.
