Abstract: BPS magnetic monopoles are solitonic states in Yang-Mills- Higgs theory. Recently it has been conjectured that monopoles with large charge resemble a shell-like structure, known as a magnetic bag. I will discuss some new evidence in support of this conjecture, based on the Nahm transform.
