So I want to get an external enclosure for 3 or more hard drives. I want the option to have each run independently, or in a RAID setup. Is there something like this on the market?

There are many external raid options, what is comes down to is money and data safety.
Go for broke SAS Raid 6.

Yes, Raid 6 would be a good setup, but...

What are some options for good 3+ hdd enclosures?

You didn't mention a budget, money is always a factor. For 3 drives do a RAID5, don't be on the fence about whether to RAID or not as this is the kind of decision to make now and leave it that way, especially because performance in different configs will vary.
