Is it spelled DUFFLE or DUFFEL??

Ok, i’m going crazy reviewing copy on our website. Is it duffle bag or duffel bag? Apparently, spell check takes either. But shouldn’t there be only one that is correct?


duf·fel   /ˈdʌfəl/ Show Spelled[duhf-uhl]
1.a camper’s clothing and equipment.
2.a coarse woolen cloth having a thick nap, used for coats, blankets, etc.
3.duffel bag.

Also, duffle.

1640–50; after Duffel, a town near Antwerp

Well..that doesn’t help. I guess I’ll get over it. At least I learned it came from Belgium.
