We give a means of estimating the equivariant compression of a group G in terms of properties of open subgroups G i G whose direct limit is G. Quantifying a result by Gal, we also study the behaviour of the equivariant compression under amalgamated free products G 1∗H G 2 where H is of finite index in both G 1 and G 2.
