I'm almost 40 and didn't start foam rolling until I was almost 30 years old. I wish I had known the ins and outs of foam rolling earlier in my life because I truly do believe it could have prolonged my "prime" athleticism but unfortunately I was plagued by some injuries here and there (knee, hip, lower back).
If you've been going pretty hard at the gym or with any kind of running (long-distance, treadmill, sprints, etc) and you are beginning to experience knee pain or discomfort, often it's related to your I.T. band and the tracking of your knee. Foam rolling is definitely something that can alleviate that pain but also make it pain free for future use.
If you're into exercise and/or an active lifestyle but do not own a foam roller you better add to cart and check out.
Lastly the foamy foam rollers are no bueno. don't waste your time. Just like older men, with age/use, they get soft and lose their firmness.
I did have to spend some time figuring out what stretches work for me using the roller. I vary it up sometimes, but my go-to stretches are:
1. put roller in line with spine and roll left and right
2. put roller across back below shoulder blades, roll forward and back and swing side to side
3. put roller behind neck like a pillow and rotate neck left and right
4. on hands and knees with roller under hands, roll it all the way forward until face touches ground
5. on hands and knees, move one leg straight behind, cross other leg in front of knee, put roller under hands and roll forward
Rolling out my legs before, and giving special attention to sore muscles after my workouts, changes everything. Before rolling, my calves would be so sore and tired immediately after running that I could barely walk straight; with this foam roller, I feel more recovered 20 minutes after a workout than I used to 2 hours after. It's not merely superficial pain relief either, I can go from walking with a compensating limp from soreness to walking with vigor after a few minutes with this.
More than that, I've been able to work out considerably more often, and I feel more confident than ever that I'm working out injury free thanks to rolling my ITB and other problem areas before running. In the month after ordering and using this roller, I dropped nearly a minute from my 10k pace - about 5 minutes from my total time.
Be aware that this is not a massage roller. Although I've said it helps with pain relief, rolling with this may hurt a bit itself at first. To call this "firm" is maybe unfair, because its core is completely rigid, covered with a foam layer just thick enough to give it texture and grip so it can be used effectively. The first dozen or so times you use it, you may need to ease your weight onto it and take it easy. However, I found that after a week or so it not only didn't hurt, it felt outright good - I would go so far as to say comfortable thanks to the excellent foam layer. Having used this, I can't imagine hoping for comparable results out of a compressible, all-foam roller.
As for the rest, this roller is simply well designed. It's lightweight, very durable and water resistant (including sweat), the foam layer doesn't look stressed out or cracked from use, even though I live in an extremely, disturbingly dry climate. Nothing is peeling, nothing is deformed, nothing shows even the slightest sign of wear. It's as good as the day I bought it, and I wouldn't hesitate to pack it in my gym bag or trunk without fear of crushing the shape. Top notch, look forward to years of happy use.

I don't use it on my back, but I probably should. I have never had any complaints in that area, so I pretty much only use it on my legs.
In terms of the patterns, I don't think they make any difference. It's very much marketing talk when they say it mimics fingers and palms. It all feels the same on the muscle, its firm enough to do the job yet cushioned to not feel like I'm brushing against hard plastic.
- Rigid and can take my weight (about 70kg) in different positions, has not lost shape after many months of use
- Does wonder for your muscle recovery after intense sessions, my legs definitely feel less sore afterwards
- Small and light enough to carry around, and you can store items inside the hollow if taking to gym
- With the hollow it is much easier to pick up (with one hand) compared to a traditional roller without
- If you're quite big and tall, this may be too small for massaging both legs at the same time
