The isiNene were heavy animal hide or layers of skin, shaped into a front and back shield of sorts – designed to give protection to a Zulu Warriors genitals. Normally dyed black or brown, they were heavy enough to protect against slashes and cuts from an enemies spear (or similar cutting weapons). The isiNene were split on the sides to provide mobility.
