Is duffle English and Duffel - French? What is the correct term/spelling.

Dunno. It's a gray area. Wait...or is it a grey area?
Power if Internet search.
Duffel bags (also called duffle bags) are named after the town where
their thick cloth was originally made. The town of Duffel is in
Belgium, near Antwerp, and its production of the bag’s coarse, woolen
cloth dates back to the mid-17th century. Historically, the term
duffel bag referred to one specific type of bag: large, cylindrical,
and closed at the top with a drawstring or zipper. Over time, however,
the term duffel (or duffle) bag has grown to include any large
“holdall” bag made of thick fabric.
"Duffel", with "duffle" as an alternative
Interesting to note that it shows "Duffel bag", but "Duffle coat"
The osprey 40 liter transporter Duffel looks good. Thanks for the history links. I think I will check out Belgium.
